My birthday passed recently. And while many are happy to give or receive the customary “happy birthday” greetings, I’ve never seen much use in them. So I tried to head it off on Twitter with a specific request: instead of saying “happy birthday”, suggest a good non-fiction book to me instead. I expected maybe a… More Birthday book recommendations
It’s been a dream of mine for years to own a high-end canoe, ultra light in weight, sleek, and fast on the open water.
